University of Queensland hosts Foundation Lecture

The second of three Ove Arup Foundation-funded lectures at the University of Queensland, entitled ‘The Architect and Engineering Technology’, took place in November 2015.

Video from the lecture has just become available, and are available here.

The lecture focused on the complexity of the relationship between architects and the quickening evolution of engineering technology.

The key speaker was Dr Alan Cheville of the T. Jefferson Miers Chair in Electrical Engineering at Bucknell University. Peter Burnton the Arup Group industry advisor to the Civil Engineering Department of the UofQ introduced The Ove Arup Foundation to the colloquia.

The lecture was part of a series of three held with distinguished speakers. The lectures are the centrepiece of three-day colloquia designed to inform and engage key stakeholders.
